Ukraine's state budget for 2013 could be revised following its fulfillment in Jan-Sep, announced FinMin. According to FinMin’s official, Halyna Pakhachuk, the changes will be made only in case of necessity. At the same time, she recalled that the provisions of the Budget Code envisage state budget cutting amid the absence of proper revenues. She said that the revision of state budget figures after the nine months of the year was expedient, since many expert institutes currently have different macroeconomic forecasts.
